We are delighted to confirm that this year we will be holding a special Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Big Lunch! This free event will take place on 5th June at Wolverton Recreational Ground from 12 noon – 4pm.  

The Mayor of Milton Keynes will be opening the event at 12 noon. There will be traditional games for children, children's magician Mr Custard, a bouncy castle and a coconut shy. Everyone is welcome to dress up in fancy dress and use the throne and props for photographs. Music will be provided by New Bradwell Silver Band and a choir. Red Phoenix Storytelling and The Bardic Council of Stony Stratford will be providing youth bardic workshops and entertainment. There will also be a competition for the best Stony Stratford Platinum Jubilee Pudding - details to be advertised shortly. Bring a picnic or take advantage of the takeaway food options on-site which include Safi's Kitchen, a tea and coffee van, pizza, fish and chips and ice cream.
